    I read the comments underneath, quite interesting especially the one by Ar Sphincter.

          Great sculptor and all that, but I was never convinced by the hair:

          ...looks like an omelette has just landed on his head.

            I would assume the "hair" is meant to be a Phrygian cap. Here is another Rodin sculpture with the cap identified as such. The cap has been used to denote liberty, freedom, etc.

              Thanks for the info, Anna. However, whether it's hair or a cap, it still looks more like an omelette. And a six-egg one, at that.
              Kind regards, Sam Flynn

                I replied here and where is it? ......

                Yes, the first looks like a six egg omelette and the one I posted looks like a large meringue, toasted on top. Maybe this is egg-zactly what Rodin wanted us to think.

                    Looks like a comb-oeufer.

                      Perhaps it was Shrove Tuesday at the Gates of Hell and the pancake tossing got out of hand.

                        Robert:

                        Better pancake tossin' than salad tossing.
                        You can look it up.
